Dark Horse Books presents Takio: The Complete Collection, the newest original graphic novel to join Brian Michael Bendis’ Jinxworld imprint, home to award-winning series like Powers, Pearl, Jinx, Torso, and more. Takio: The Complete Collection includes the adventure graphic novel by Brian Michael Bendis (Ultimate Spider-Man, producer of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse) and Michael Avon Oeming (Powers, Blue Book) and its sequel miniseries issues #1-4.
Taki and Olivia are sisters in an adoptive family–and they’re driving each other crazy! Every day, their overprotective mother makes them walk to school together, eat lunch together and play together–they can’t get away from each other!
But when a secret experiment goes catastrophically wrong, the squabbling siblings suddenly find that they have superpowers. They’re the first actual superheroes in the entire world–and it is awesome!
But are the girls ready to face the daunting challenges posed by their amazing new abilities? And is the rest of the world ready for real-life superheroes?
“Takio is a true family affair and a labor of complete love made with the same energy and spirit of Miles Morales and Riri Wiliams,” said Bendis. “I know that fans of those characters will be delighted with this entre into a fun new superhero family. Wait till you meet the super sisters of Takio!”
Oeming continued, “Inspired by Brian’s daughter Olivia and my wife Taki, TakiO is one of our favorite creations because it literally came from our family!”
Takio: The Complete Collection is perfect for fans of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Invincible Iron Man: Ironheart, and Young Avengers.
